Getting a Scoliosis Diagnosis is life-changing. If you’re like most people, you are educating yourself about Scoliosis treatment options, and most likely you’re using the internet for your information. The problem with this is the information we are consuming may not be the whole truth, and some of it is flat-out deceptive marketing.
Let me start by saying, scoliosis in the adolescent is best treated with a full-time brace. The published studies do not indicate which type of brace is best, just that bracing is necessary for optimal outcomes.
In the Adult with Scoliosis treatment is a little more complicated. Adult scoliosis is often complicated by arthritis, disc degeneration, and osteoporosis. For these reasons, adults with scoliosis should have a thorough evaluation and any treatment should be provided under the supervision of a trained professional.
So let’s Compare and Contrast the Spinecor Brace and the Scoliosmart Activity Suit.
Spinecor- Full-time Orthopedic Brace for Scoliosis
ScoliSmart Suit- Designed to be worn for 2 hours and is not a brace
Spinecor- 43 Published Studies in the Peer-reviewed Medical Literature.
ScoliSmart Suit- 0
Spinecor- Custom Fitted by a Doctor with over 26 fitting options
Scolismart Suit – mail order, not custom fitted
Spinecor- Has an Insurance Code, reimbursed as Durable Medical Equipment
ScoliSmart Suit-not recognized by major medical insurance carriers.
Please use this information to make informed decisions. Scoliosis is a medical condition and should not be treated with unproven methods.
